Sixteen years in the making, this monumental revision of the first edition of this text is a ground-breaking new work highlighting the role of natural medicine in urology and men's health. With massively expanded content, and the benefit of Dr. Yarnell's focused practice and study in these area for the past 20 years, this text will help both the student approaching the content for the first time and the busy clinician looking to improve their outcomes in these areas.
Covering both extremely common conditions (e.g. UTI, interstitial cystitis, erectile dysfunction, and hypogonadism) as well as some less common issues (e.g. Peyronie’s disease, phimosis, male genital lichen sclerosus, and balanitis), this text provides quick, effective clinical guidance on a diversity of problems. Controversial subjects including circumcision are discussed in depth. Learn to properly recognize and manage all these conditions and more, with handy quick summary guides start- ing off each chapter and then diving into deep discussions of each topic. Extensive coverage of herbal treatment for patients with these conditions is particularly notable.
